Playing around with a stand. Block screws onto ASA and then slides into the base.

Credit goes to this one on thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2917923

Grabbed the thread mesh from that one and drew up the rest of it using the original geometry for inspiration. I didn't really like how the original mounted in the base.

Print question. What type of glue is good to patch hairline fractures in a printed piece?

I was thinking super glue, but thought'd I'd check first.

On a side note: DO NOT USE RAINX FOR PLASTICS ON 3D PRINTED PIECES! It seems to seep into any little imperfection and make it bigger, like hammering a wood wedge into a crack.

Depending on the crack, I've had some success with plastic "welding". Just use a soldering iron and a piece of waste filament, and pretend like you're TIG welding.

Life kind of got in the way and my Ender 3 has gone largely ignored lately. I'm starting to get it dialed back in again, but I'm getting tired of having to go through this process every time I decide to resume printing on my warped bed again. So, I decided to pull the trigger on Creality's BLTouch kit to add automatic bed leveling to my printer. It includes the sensor, a bracket and all of the necessary hardware to flash the firmware on the printer. I'm hoping that this will make my on and off again printing much easier in the long run.

I used to not be a fan of super glue. Now I use it all the time (higher quality and different viscosities for different tasks helps) for wood. I would say thin CA is a good choice if you can't get into the crack and need it to seep in. Medium CA if you can get it in the crack better.

There's an upgrade for my prusa that came out a month after my purchase which helps with transparent and soft filaments. It is cheap, but involves reconstruction of the extruder which is working fine otherwise. I'm not in a hurry to dig back into that.

Here's something I've been working on: parts for a fishing rod holder for my new pontoon boat.

While I didn't print anything particularly complicated today, I did manage to get a bed level test out this evening after installing a BLTouch on my Ender 3. After getting the calibration correct and modifying my start gcode with a custom script I found on Reddit, I had what was probably my best first layer of all time. This sensor was able to map out my bed to 1/100th of a mm in nine locations. I almost felt bad scraping the test off the glass.

I've got the beginnings of my next print going now. Any guesses as to what it is? Thanks for sharing this model, Ty. Shhhh...
